Any of you Steel City fans out there know anything about Dave Williams? I know he is the fifth starter for the Bucs but he has solid numbers throughout his minor league career and even has decent numbers in his brief stint in the majors. He's got two starts this week and I could use another double duty pitcher. Is he a decent sleeper?

Anyone? I just lost Benitez and I have to trade a SP for a closer and I need to fill a roster spot with a SP. 14 team H2H league that starts 9 pitchers.

Yeah, I know about him. He's not bad. Left-handed, can throw fairly fast. He hadn't been getting regular turns in the rotation in the first two weeks, but I read last week that McClendon said he's going to pitch every fifth day.

He's just like most of the pitchers on the Pirates - they are good, but since the Pirates never score runs they don't win very much. I'd take a chance on him if you need someone. Hey, if he's playing the Astros he has a good shot at winning...they aren't playing very well right now. :-/

Great assesment of Williams ..

I have had him on my radar all spring.
I just picked him up over in my NL only.
He has the tools, though his ceiling is probably as a number three maybe a number two.

As Mercer said, though. Don't expect a ton of wins

Sounds about right to me as well. An okay lefty who won't blow up your fantasy team, but won't win you anything, either.
